Pools provide so much fun and entertainment, but did you know spending time at the pool can lead to improved focus and concentration? We’ve put together a list of three ways pools can help improve your cognitive functioning–leading to better focus. You may find this results in better productivity and even success!

 1. Sleep

When you’re tired, it challenging to concentrate on tasks, or find the focus needed to problem-solve. Adequate sleep is directly tied to the ability to concentrate. Did you know pools and spas can help improve your sleep? The rhythmic nature of swimming, and exercise, will enable you to sleep better. If you own a spa, the warm, massaging water of the spa can also help you sleep better at night. You’ll find that waking up refreshed will improve your focus and concentration.

2. Relaxation

In a 2004 study University Hospital Basel, Switzerland, researchers found that mental relaxation improves long-term incidental visual memory. Taking time to relax and using relaxation techniques like breathing, meditation and yoga can improve focus and concentration. Scheduling some time either before work, after work or on the weekends to relax by the pool and recharge can have major benefits on your focus, leading to increased productivity…and even success!

3. Great Outdoors

Studies have shown that time spent in the great outdoors and in nature increases cognitive functioning and concentration. Many Australians spend time cooped up in offices with artificial light. Taking a break and spending time outdoors at your pool can help you think more clearly and focus better thanks to the sunlight, fresh air and nature.
